Foundation Degree Dance students were given a masterclass by professional dancer and choreographer Noa Mamrud, part of the education team at the renowned Russell Maliphant Dance Company on 8th May, at the College’s Clarendon campus.

Rus­sell Maliphant Com­pa­ny merges tech­niques from clas­si­cal and con­tem­po­rary dance with prin­ci­pals and con­cepts from body­work and mar­tial arts. Olive Kane, Edu­ca­tion Man­ag­er at the Com­pa­ny, said: We believe in invest­ing in the future of the dance indus­try by fos­ter­ing and edu­cat­ing tal­ent and chal­leng­ing the next gen­er­a­tion of move­ment artists, dancers and chore­o­g­ra­phers. I hope the stu­dents learnt some­thing new from the work­shop and enjoyed the experience.”

Malachi Minto (pic­tured), 22, from Best­wood, start­ed on Lev­el 2 Dance at the Col­lege. He worked his way up through the lev­els, and is set to progress to the The­atre Arts BA (Hons) Top-up Degree in Dance this September.

The con­tem­po­rary work­shop was great fun and I gained a bet­ter aware­ness of my body and ways to improve my move­ment and con­trol. We stud­ied the work of Rus­sell Maliphant in Year 3 so to get the chance to dance with a chore­o­g­ra­ph­er from his team was a bril­liant experience.

Lau­ren Perkins (pic­tured above), 20, from The Mead­ows, said: It was great to expe­ri­ence some­thing dif­fer­ent, and it brought me out of my com­fort zone. Noa is an amaz­ing chore­o­g­ra­ph­er and I learnt a lot about the use of my bones and mus­cles; it was real­ly inter­est­ing. Even­tu­al­ly I’d love to per­form as part of a dance com­pa­ny, so this was a good insight into that world.”
